Fluid Mechanics

The research within the subject fluid mechanics is done with contemporary methods in a creative environment and often in larger groups together with researchers from other subjects and/or universities/companies.

Focus is on flow through porous media, multiphase flow, flow with free surfaces and in-stationary flow. The tools applied are experimental, analytical and numerical methods. The research is applied within hydropower (production, security, environment), mining and steel industry and within areas such as composites manufacturing, health aspects, flow of grease, flow within bearings and filtertechnology.
